Crystal pendulums are a popular tool used in spiritual practices to tap into the energy of the universe and gain insight into our inner selves. They work by harnessing the power of our own subconscious minds to interpret the energy patterns of the crystals, providing guidance and clarity on various aspects of our lives. In this blog, we'll explore how to use crystal pendulums in your own spiritual practice, so get ready to swing with spirit!
Choosing Your Pendulum:
The first step in using a crystal pendulum is to choose one that resonates with you. There are many types of crystals that can be used for this purpose, such as clear quartz, amethyst, and rose quartz. Hold the pendulum in your hand and ask it if it is the right one for you. If it reacts it's a yes, and if it stays motionless, it's a no.
Clearing Your Pendulum:
Before using your pendulum, it's important to clear it of any unwanted energy. You can do this by holding it under running water or using sound such as bells, gongs or singing bowls. Once your pendulum is clear, hold it in your dominant hand and ask it to show you a yes and no response. This will help you to establish a baseline for how the pendulum will swing. Spend some time doing this so you are sure you know its movements as some pendulums move back and forth for yes and no, whereas others, move for yes or motionless for no.
Using Your Pendulum:
Now that your pendulum is ready to go, you can use it in a variety of ways. One popular method is to hold it over each of your chakras using a proxy board,( see image) starting at the crown and working your way down. Allow the pendulum to swing freely and observe the direction of the swing. If it swings in a clockwise motion, it means that your chakra is balanced, and if it swings in a counterclockwise motion, it means that your chakra is blocked. It is at this point you can add crystals to the proxy board OR onto your chakras on the body to help balance your chakras. Leave them there with a meditation on with the intention of balancing and releasing blockages.
Another method is to use the pendulum for divination, asking it yes or no questions about various aspects of your life. Hold the pendulum steady in your hand and ask it a question, then observe the direction of the swing. A clockwise motion typically means yes, and a counterclockwise motion means no.
Finally, Using crystal pendulums in your spiritual practice can be a fun and enlightening experience. By choosing a pendulum that resonates with you, clearing it of unwanted energy, and using it to explore your chakras or ask for guidance, you can gain valuable insights into your inner self and connect more deeply with the energy of the universe. So go ahead, swing with spirit, and see where your pendulum takes you!
